Elgin O'Hare Western Access Project
The Illinois Route 390 Project was completed and opened to the public in November of 2018. This $780 million project improved the roadway from Lake Street (U.S. Route 20) to I-290 and extended Illinois Route 390 east to Illinois Route 83 along the current Thorndale Avenue with bridges and frontage roads to accommodate local traffic, including access to Wood Dale Road. This project has provided easier access to businesses throughout Wood Dale, with the community already seeing the benefits of the project. This is the second section of 390 to open, making it at 10-mile toll road. The first section, formerly known as the Elgin-O'Hare expressway starts in Hannover Park and ends in Itasca. Part of an estimated $3.4 billion project, the Tollway wants to eventually have western access to O'Hare.
Safety Improvement Project
This project consists of intersection reconstruction and widening, new combination concrete curb and gutter, traffic signal modernization, traffic signal interconnection, storm sewer, water main, lighting and retaining walls. An additional southbound right turn lane will be provided which will accommodate dual right turns onto WB Irving Park Road. An eastbound Irving Park Road right turn lane is also being added to the intersection. The west leg of Commercial Street and Wood Dale Road will be realigned and relocated approximately 500 feet north of existing Commercial Street.

Squaw Creek Headwall and Streambank
The Squaw Creek project is a reconstruction of the Headwall where the storm sewer pipes daylight between Miller Lane and Dalewood Ave. This headwall is in need of repairs. The second portion of this project is to repair the streambank of the Squaw Creek and reestablish a useful flow throughout the area.
